After having left your car in the car park of Bar Ventolone, take the Atestino path near a little roadside shrine. Follow the lane to the right of the shrine in an easterly direction, cutting across the southern and eastern slopes of Mount Piccolo. The path crosses olive groves at first, and then continues through woods and scrubland. You reach the hamlet of Corte Vigo and then walk downhill through the thick scrubland till you reach a lane signposted Via Ventolone. Take this road to the left, crossing a lush valley of farmland and then climb till you reach the building known as 'casa del parroco'. Continue along the eastern crest of Mount Orbieso; a short detour will take you to the ruins of the convent of Santa Maria di Orbise, located on the top of the hill (330 m).
